InformationThe eighth edition of Art Madrid, the Contemporary Art Fair, will count with the participation of 40 national and international galleries, and will open its doors from 13 to 17 February in its new location, the attic of the Chamartín station.
In tune with the changes of the art market and, in particular, of the galleries business model, Art Madrid has decided to design a new fair model, advocating to increase the quality and produce a smaller format, with the presence of 40 galleries.
On the other hand, Art Madrid doubles its annual presence with a first call from 13 to 17 February 2013 and the following one in November. This double call aims at galleries and, therefore, its artists have greater visibility throughout the year.
Another novelty is the change of location, from the Casa de Campo to the Attic of the Chamartín Train Station. The new space has three wide, open and vaulted rooms, perfect for a Contemporary art fair, with a spacious 2,500 square meters of exhibition. In addition, the new location will provide better access to a greater number of visitors, who can arrive by car, underground and commuter trains.
Besides the General Program, the fair also maintains One Project, the fair's big bet for young art, with the presence of new and unconventional media. One Project, curated by the art critic Javier Rubio Nomblot, welcomes galleries taking part with a specific project of one artist younger than 40 years of age, in a solo format.
During the fair and in cooperation with Montana Colors, the artist Miguel Ángel Belinchón "Belin", specialized in urban art and graffiti, will realize a giant mural painting of 10 by 3'22 metres in the exterior wall of the exhibition hall.
